CGI is, of course, good and all, but sometimes it's nice to know what's going on "under the hood." This can be useful to know if you're in the testing phase and want to be sure your cookie's being read or sent.

When a page sets a cookie on a browser, all it's doing (usually) is adding this line to its headers:

Set-Cookie: name=value; expires=(date)

plus any path you specify. When a cookie-enabled browser requests another page from the domain (or path in that domain specified by the cookie), it adds its own Cookie: header to its request. This is available as $ENV{HTTP_COOKIE}.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
